Did you miss Data Day 2015? No worries -- most of the slide presentations and videos of the event are now available online!

At the Data Day 2015 web site you can download the slides directly or click over to YouTube to watch videos of each of the speakers.

Data Day was held at the Li Ka Shing Center of Monday, April 13 and focused on the latest developments that make data sharing easier and advance the progress of reproducible research and data reuse. Attendees heard from Stanford faculty from biomedicine, psychology, sociology, and engineering, as well as from our keynote speaker, Christine Borgman, who is Professor and Presidential Chair in Information Studies at UCLA.

We are pleased to announce that Data Day 2015 will be made available live via BlueJeans!

On the morning of the event, click here to authenticate into BlueJeans using your SUNet ID. This service is only available to individuals with a Stanford ID. Up to 100 people will be able to watch the event from 8:30am to 1:00pm. First come, first served!

Nearly 250 people signed up within 48 hours of the announcement of the event, which will take place April 13, 2015 at the Li Ka Shing Conference Center at Stanford.

The Science and Engineering Libraries and the Lane Medical Library have teamed up to create an event for graduate students, post-docs, and undergraduate researchers. Gear Up for Research Day on Monday, April 6 will have multiple activities including an information fair, lightning talks, demos, and publisher workshops.

Campus organizations and units attending the event include the Office of Research, Biosciences Grant Writing Academy, ICME C2 Consulting, the Stanford Geospatial Center and the Technical Communication Program.  External participants representing publishers and research tool vendors such as Mendeley, EndNote, JOVE, PeerJ, IEEE, Annual Reviews, Elsevier and Springer will also offer lightning talks and workshops.

It only makes sense that if you were making solar cells or computer chips that you would choose the best materials for those tasks. It's a no-brainer, right? The problem is that the best materials might be very expensive to use. 

Such has been the case with gallium arsenide, but this may be changing.

Bruce Clemens and Garrett Hayes have developed a new way of making chips from gallium arsenide that brings down the cost considerably. They created a video that describes a new manufacturing process, and they have preserved that video in the Stanford Digital Repository for you to download and watch!
